There has been a discussion on a Mailing List That Shall Not Be Named about clericals and vestments. It is one of those confidential lists that I like to write on, but really want to recycle to material for the blog — so I’ll pull my own words and anonymize the rest. (More about that later.)
I was looking for photographs to demonstrate what I mean. And then I found — and explored — a site I’ve run into a few times over the last few years.
KenCollins.com is within two weeks as old (that is, nine and a half years) as my original “Evangelical Universalist” effort, but this makes me feel like a slacker.
The eponymous Ken Collins is a Disciples minister in the Virginia suburbs, and a Wesley grad. Who knew?
But I really, really like his illustrated glossary of clericals and vestments.
And his “prayer builder” application — where a service can be generated by clicking a few boxes and a few fill-in boxes. Note to self: figure out what application he used and build something with Universalist liturgy, integrating psalms.
But there is so much to love here. Essays galore, but if you have to start somewhere, check the reference sections and subordinate links.
